DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. February 16, 2017, 9:08 AM (IDT)
The Malaysian police said Thursday morning that it had arrested a woman with an Indonesian passport who is suspected of involvement in the murder of Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korea's leader, at Kuala Lumpur's international airport. Another female suspect was arrested on Wednesday. Meanwhile, the North Korean government demanded that Kim's body be handed over for burial.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
